Faces of Philadelphia (Musicians) portrait series opens at Brewerytown Beats tonight
Local artist Anna Mraz is celebrating the diverse spirit of the Philly music scene with her Faces of Philadelphia (Musicians) exhibit, opening tonight at Brewerytown Beats. We want to give several hat tips to Philebrity, who spotted the First Friday event and gave us a sneak peak into the watercolor-on-plexiglass portraits that will be lining the walls of the Brewerytown record store.
As Philebrity reports, the ethereal paintings capture of a wide range of the city’s talent pool, from Lushlife‘s Raj Haldar to Lotus‘ Jesse Miller, and Diamond Girl‘s Erin McCurdie. The faces are recognizable, but Mraz looks and feels beyond the physical traits as she seems to tap into each musician’s individual auratic palette.
The gallery reception opens at 6:00 p.m. tonight, with refreshments provided by Crime and Punishment Brewery. Take a look at Mraz’s portfolio here; more information for the Faces of Philadelphia (Musicians) event can be found here, and work by some of the portrait subjects is below.
